Man pleaded guilty to child molestation

December 3, 2002

Colquitt County - A Moultrie man pleaded guilty to one count of child molestation. Sixty-five-year-old Darrell Dean Tucker was sentenced to 20 years, five in prison and 15 on probation. He was originally indicted on nine counts of child molestation.

In May, Tucker's 38-year-old son, Daniel Dale Tucker, also pleaded guilty to child molestation charges. He was sentenced to 20 years at Ware State Prison.

Darrell Dean Tucker's daughter, Debra Benson of Worth County, says she was abused by her father at an early age and finally decided to break the silence.
